Panic has hit for some & will hit for others as thousands already are without power & will probably be joined by thousands more,no fun with the extreme cold we've had.We still have ice & snow on trees from the past week end storm,8-10" of new snow with near blizzard conditions at times,with the heavy snow fall & high winds.Easy to make fun of others panicking,but we could be in that same situation for the next 24hrs. Lisa,there is a big difference between sleet & freezing rain, sleet will generally fall off the trees & power lines,freezing rain builds on trees & power lines,sleet is the better option. For those who enjoy the snow your day has arrived,we will try to tolerate it the best we can,we will try to keep warm,try to maitain our sanity while tossing logs onto the owb in these brutal conditions,everyone enjoy your indoor coal heat !!
We have found AccuWeather to be very accurate for our area,& if they remind me to be safe out in the storm ,I don't mind the reminder.
